This interesting foliage shrub comes to us from "across the ditch" and is a useful landscaping or container plant. The lime green 'curvaceous' foliage forms a compact weeping mound. Will do best in well drained, light soil in sun or part shade. Evergreen. PVR.
Acacia 'Curvaceous' should only be given a very light dressing of slow release fertilizer in the autumn as it is not a greedy plant and shouldn't be over fertilized.
